Description

Cape Vidal forms part of the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, separating Lake St Lucia from the ocean in northern KwaZulu-Natal. This stretch of coastline is famous for its role in the life cycle of leatherback and loggerhead turtles who come to the beach at night in the December month to lay their eggs. Visitors can look forward to a real bush to beach getaway at Cape Vidal.

Cape Vidal is popular for recreational activities like boating, deep sea fishing, snorkelling, and spear fishing. Cape Vidal bay has a designated launch site for boats. The eastern shores of Lake St Lucia is home to a variety of game such as antelope, hippo, monkey, crocodile, and buffalo, as well as water, forest, and grassland birds. The marine habitat is the route used by humpback whales on their migration to Mozambique to calve, and they can be spotted from the beach in season. Other marine animals include migratory marlin, sailfish, and dolphins.
